Nice hopeful study today showing how several children have managed to get significant improvements after just nine hours of NMT (NeuroModular Technique), otherwise known as the Feinberg Method.
New therapy reversing autistic symptoms in just nine hours
NMT tries to re-establish healthy neural communication between the mind and body by using tiny electrical charges and positive statements.
It has been tested on 18 children with autism, who received two sessions of NMT a week for six weeks, which amounted to nine hours of therapy. In that time, all of the children displayed improved behaviour, mood, speech, language skills and social awareness, said lead researcher Robert Weinberg, a clinical psychologist based in Dallas, Texas.
Those nine hours compared to just two to three days of Applied Behaviour Analysis, the current ‘gold standard’ therapy for autism.
The mother of one child who took part in the study commented: “My son had an extremely difficult time keeping a calm body for any length of time. Now he can sit still for 40 minutes, and he is doing better sitting properly at the dinner table.”
